Today was the first time I got a chance to see the wounds from the August 16th surgery. Dr. Buchanan said I could return to work as soon as I felt up to it. That's great to hear, because I'm running low on leave.
I also received my bone stimulator. It's a small device I wear on the ankle for 30 minutes a night to stimulate growth. I have no idea how it works, so I'll have to do some research to figure out why it's not the same thing as magnetic healing bracelets.
Here's the pelvic incision. I broke out in some kind of rash, but now that I'm no longer wearing a bandage here, that should go away. You can tell that the person (Josie) that sewed this incision up was just a little bit of a perfectionist! Look how perfectly spaced out the stitches are.
The top incision was stitched together without any staples. The stitch work here doesn't look pretty, but it gets the job done.
